We went with Thomas Cook to this hotel. It is not in Albuferia as advertised. It cost between €7.00 to €10.00 in a taxi to Alburferia. The rooms are very poor with stained sheets and torn towels. The only good thing to say about this hotel is the staff, they are hard working and very nice. The pool is very... More

If you need an affordable hotel in Gale, Portugal, this is the one. Nice rooms, great pool, excellent facilities, bar and restaurant. Maria, the manager, was fantastic, as were the rest of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they even arranged a suckling pig meal for us, on our last night. The owners Whisky collection was something else!!

The only good thing about this hotel was the pool and even that was a lot smaller than the pictures show. The hotel itself is very basic and our room smelt strongly of bleach. The hotel itself is situated very far from anything, which made transport into Albuferria (the nearest town) very costly as we were paying for cabs there... More

The hotel is a small family run affair.It`s rooms are basic but absolutely spotless.The shower was very powerful which is a nice change to the slow trickle in some places.Each room has a small fridge,a terrace/balcony & you have the option to upgrade to a sea view & or a double bed. The food & bar prices are very reasonable... More

We are at the torre velha at the moment and are enjoying our stay. It's not like any hotel we have stopped in its very quirky. The bar area has over 3000 different whiskies and loads of collectable all around it . Pool area clean . Not massive but enough beds. Rooms are quiet sparse . Not a lot of... More

Considering my husband and I booked a last minute deal on a budget (as we have a baby on the way), we have just returned from our stay at Torre Velha having had a lovely relaxing holiday. We arrived very late at night (past midnight) and were treated by a lovely smiley staff member who waited at reception just to... More

We had a great week at Torre Velah. The rooms are basic but good. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful, Especially Maria, Marta and Bella. When it came to leaving we didn't want to go. The pool is cold but very welcoming when the temp hits over 35c. And Castelo beach is just a short walk away. Easy... More
